All serious users know that it's a good thing to have your Linux machines turned on for long periods of time, none of that daily rebooting for us!

But how do you keep track of your record? You need to have something to record your longest ever period without a reboot, (known as an `uptime`) for bragging.

Enter Uptime deamon. This will keep track of your three longest uptime periods, and allow you to share the results.
